Alaska / Pacific Halibut Cheeks

16 oz. Avg pkg

Wild-Caught, Nutrient Dense, Sustainably-Sourced

Halibut Cheeks are a delicacy. While their flavor profile mimics the more prevalent halibut steak or fillet, their texture more closely resembles that of crab or lobster tail. Commonly referred to as the ‘filet mignon’ of the halibut, this sought after cut of the fish can be sautéed, baked, grilled, or deep fried.

The number of halibut cheeks in a pound varies based on the size of the halibut from which the cheeks are harvested. Halibut cheeks are a delicacy and are often compared to scallops in texture. Generally:

  • Small halibut might produce cheeks that weigh around 0.5 to 1 ounce each.
  • Larger halibut might produce cheeks that weigh 2 to 3 ounces or even more.

Based on this:

  • If you're dealing with cheeks from smaller halibut (0.5 to 1 ounce each), you could have between 16 to 32 cheeks in a pound.
  • If you're dealing with cheeks from larger halibut (2 to 3 ounces each), you could have between 5 to 8 cheeks in a pound.

These are just general estimates, and the actual number can vary based on the exact size of the fish and how the cheeks are processed and cleaned.
